Faculty & Staff
- Associate Professor of Sociology
- “I view learning as a journey of discovery and self-growth that I and my students embark together. Serving as a guide and companion, I walk along with them, encouraging them to feel confident to achieve their very best.”
- Guest Professor
- “Anyone who has grown up in the presence of other humans has grown up in a psychology laboratory. One thing I try to do in my courses is to help students recognize that and learn to look around and see what they might be able to learn from their fellow humans.”
- Professor of Psychology
- “The theme of many of my classes is critical thinking. My area – psychology – attracts a lot of nonsense, and my goal is for students to think critically about claims involving psychology. Second, I work to get students involved in class. If you’re the kind of person who likes to be part of the action, I hope you’ll join us.”
